“Seems like a hot spot with the locals.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Good food and quick service. The staff were very quiet, not even conversing among themselves. Lots of people were stopping in to pick up their take out for lunch. You could tell it is popular with the locals, which is just the kind of place I'm looking for while traveling!

“Great sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Great, reasonably priced sushi - not spoken together often! The decor is economy diner style, but the sushi more than makes up for it. They get very busy most evenings, especially weekends, but I've never had a long wait for a table.

“Good food, not much service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

The pace is pretty spacious, but little parking. Street parking is best. The food is affordable and pretty good choices. The downtown and uptown sushi rolls are my favorite...pretty unique. Service is slow though.

“Perfectly adequate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Not amazing but just fine. Fresh as can be. Nice waitstaff. Hole in the wall. Not sure I would go back but I do recommend it.

“Holy moly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I am a sushi lover and this place was terrific! The food was amazing and very affordable. Ignore the ambiance, which is easy, cause there isn't any. Focus on the food, which is even simpler cause it is mouth watering. The staff were friendly and efficient, even during VERY busy times. Loved it!
